I actually finished this card for a friend a couple of days ago, so decided I would go ahead and post. The stamp is from Stampin Up and one of my favorites. I inked this rose with VersaMark and then Distress Brushed Corduroy, stamped and then clear embossed. I wanted a soft vintage feel, so colored with Stampin Up Chalks (pinks, greens, yellows), added a little extra color here and there with Barely Banana and Certainly Celery markers. Did a quick set with matt sealer. Shaded around the edges with Brushed Corduroy. The Cheery Lynn butterfly was cut from a cream colored shrink plastic and I used Red Pepper, Mountain Snow and Pearl Alcohol Inks to color. Kept adding blending solution until I achieved the color I was looking for and then shaded with Stazon Timber Brown! Added some ribbon and that was that. Hope this cheers up my friend!
GC122 - Alcohol Inks! I use plenty of alcohol inks for various projects and really liked adding the subtle color to the butterflies!
Have a wonderful rest of the week! Many thanks for the visit!
